      In defiance of the national Green Party, the Green Party of Alaska has drafted Jesse Ventura and Cynthia McKinney as their presidential and vice presidential nominees, granting them ballot access in the state.

      Drawing parallels to the Draft Eisenhower movement of 1952, the Green Party of Alaska outlined the following in their official statement: “Only once before in US history has an ordinary citizen been lifted up by the people and elevated to the office of President of the United States. … Over the next decade, the United States of America can emerge as leaders of the fossil-free world and end poverty globally … To get us there, we need strong leadership at ALL levels and only a trained soldier working side by side with a seasoned advocate can hope to lead the campaign of waging peace in a world at war.”

      Regarding the People for Jesse’s future role in presidential campaign efforts in Alaska, Idriss added, “We are eager to collaborate with the Green Party of Alaska moving forward during this election cycle while we continue our own push to secure write-in or other forms of ballot access for a Ventura campaign. There should be no more shaming voters into settling for corrupt and ethically compromised ‘lesser evils’. The people deserve a candidate worth voting for this November, and we’re striving to make that a reality in as many states as possible.”

      When it comes to his record as governor of Minnesota he removed the residency requirement for Minneapolis police.

      Cynthia McKinney is too far out there for me and has made anti semitic remarks. I don’t mean because she criticizes Israel, she goes further than that. I’d rather have Howie Hawkins & Angela Walker but if that was that ticket I would probably skip the top of the ballot.

      Will it deliver enough electoral votes to swing the election?
